Bus Trip and Tour to Kay-Nah-Chi-Wah-Nung Historical Centre

Saturday, June 23 | 9:00 am - 6:30 pm

 Please join us on a bus trip tour to the national historic site on the Rainy River, Kay-Nah-Chi-Wah-Nung (Manitou Mounds).

Kay-Nah-Chi-Wah-Nung encompasses more than three kilometres of Rainy River shoreline and over 90 hectares of land. It is considered one of the “most significant centres of early habitation and ceremonial burial in Canada” and it has the largest
group of burial mounds and associated village sites in Canada. Kay-Nah-Chi-Wah-Nung and the surrounding area holds the
record of almost 8,000 years.

It’s a day-long bus trip that includes:
• transportation, with a brief stop in Sioux Narrows at the northwestern Ontario Sportfishing Centre;
• a fantastic shore lunch in the restaurant at Kay-Nah-Chi-Wah-Nung;
• a tour through the historical centre;
• a guided tour of the mounds (transport by golf cart).

Cost is $75 for Museum members; $80 for non-members.
Please pre-register with the Museum at museum@kmts.ca or 807-467-2105 before June 12.

This is a wonderful day trip – educational, beautiful, and delicious – all wrapped into one great package!

There were 6 prisoner-of-war camps on Lake of the Woods during World War II. The lumber camps housed German prisoners who were set to work out in the bush cutting timber. The Museum has several boat models built by the prisoners at those camps.
